The General Surgery Residency Program emphasizes a close interaction between residents and faculty both in the operating room and out, the correlation of basic science information and clinical care, and extensive exposure to critical care medicine. Our program is balanced in general surgery, with strong and relevant experience in all surgical areas.

Categorical positions require five years of clinical training. We strongly encourage and support a research year, which has proven to be a very productive experience for our residents. The program is non-pyramidal.

We have one fellowship in Surgical Critical Care. If you are interested in a surgical specialty, such as neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, otolaryngology or urology, please communicate directly with the program director for those specialties. All candidates who match in the specialties will receive the appropriate general surgery rotations in our department.
